Inspired by some other stir-fry experiments, this is an attempt to recreate a Chinese takeout favorite from a restaurant I no longer live close to. Other veggies can be added as you like.

Directions

  1. Whisk together the chicken broth, soy sauce, 1 tablespoon cornstarch, 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger, and brown sugar in a bowl.
  2. Combine 1/4 cup cornstarch, 1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger, and curry powder in a large, sealable plastic bag and shake to mix. Add the chicken to the bag and toss until well coated.
  3. Heat the olive oil and sesame oil in a wok or large skillet over high heat. Cook and stir the chicken in the hot oil until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the green onions and bell pepper to the pan, cooking another 2 to 3 minutes. Stir the sauce mixture into the chicken and vegetable mixture; reduce heat to medium. Sprinkle sesame seeds over the dish and bring to a boil; allow to boil until the sauce thickens, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat; add cashews and toss to serve.

Let's start by saying that there isn't any left in my family of three. But..It's as salty as a salted salt stick from Salty the salted sailor. I think that's just way too much soy sauce mixed with the chicken broth. I was able to rescue by spooning in a couple of spoons of creme fraiche (most awesome french gunk ever) I'd use 1/4 cup soy and 1/4 cup of hoisin next time and cut in about a tablespoon of garlic powder, but I add garlic powder to everything and you should too so I can feel validated.

I thought this was delicious. I only gave it four stars because I changed some things. I used hoisin sauce instead of soy sauce. Hoisin sauce has soy sauce in it but tastes better than soy sauce. I used half teaspoon of ginger and half teaspoon of curry powder. I did not use sesame oil or sesame seeds because I did not have them. I served this with rice and I will definitely make it again.

I'm giving this 4 stars because we all liked it and that's including a 7 & 4 year old. I do agree that it's too salty as is though. Next time I will use low sodium soy or broth and add some garlic and red pepper flakes.
